We went here with a large group as it had been recommended by a Parisian friend. They were very friendly and accommodating and squeezed us in on a busy Saturday night. The curry dishes were quite good, but the pad thai was bland and stodgy. We had a good time, but I wouldn't go here for the food.

I am a fan of Thai food and I have never eaten better Thai before! I had chicken with lots of vegetables green curry and fried rice. My favorite soup Tom Kah Kai was delicious with a lot of chicken, veggies and fresh herbs in it. I LOVED IT!!! The waiters are also very friendly and attentive. Good price for... More

The food was good but it is really annoying when waiters are impolite and not customer service driven. We were with children and we felt we were "disturbing "....

Already asking for a table was too much for the waiter. He didn't liked to work was the impression. Later on, when we ordered with the thai names, he told us to give him the french names of the dish, because what we ordered does' t exist how we spell it. He took away later on full bottles of beers... More

I went to the restaurant with my wife a few weeks ago, and was not impressed. The waiters were not friendly at all, the food was good except for my main course which resembled what i get at the Chinese fast food near home. The presentation was lovely as was the ambiance, but seeing the waiter wipe my fork on... More

The staff were very friendly and the food was tasty. I had a green curry and my wife had a phad thai which were both very good. The cocktails were also well presented with garnishes. There is outside seating available. The inside is a little bit odd shaped but does have a medium sized bar and a decorative Buddhist shine... More

Nice and verey clean place. Cosy, good service and good food. Dinner for two with a bottle of wine, 2 corses and coctails for desert for 60?. Be there before 20pm. After that the restaurant where full. We liked it and will most likely return if we are in the area. :)

Pros: - cute French bistro atmosphere, nicely decorated - good Thai food (the classics; pad Thai, curry etc) - good value for money Cons: - the waiter was rude: no smile, he seemed very annoyed when I asked him questions about the menu (is this dish very spicy?). It was very obvious that he didn't want to be there. We... More

I would not make a detour for that restaurant, but if you happen to be around. It is nice and cozy. Service is friendly (although it was not my first impression. I was under the impression being with a young kid annoyed them. I was wrong) Food is good (I've seen better but it is above average). I recommend.

We ate here recently and really enjoyed it. The food was lovely although the portion sizes were smaller that we are used to. The service was good and the atmosphere friendly and enjoyable.
